Luckily for me, Marlys agreed to go with me and at 7:30 this morning off we headed for Tucson. We love these girl-trip just-a-coupl'a-artists moments in time - especially since we no longer share a studio. So we had dedicated time to catch up and collaborate over the whole life spectrum: our recent moves, our aging doggies, our upcoming one person shows at 515 Arts Gallery and our other work problems, scheduling problems, life problems. We had an errand to run for Marlys and afterwards we decided to call Kathryn Polk and see if she would be up for lunch. Not really, she said, but come over and say hi. So we ended up with a lovely studio visit. Kathryn is one of my hero artists. Printmakers who print like crazy and contribute to the betterment of the print world through their art and educating others. I connect to her prints on very personal levels and am awed by her drawing skill. I follow her blog so I don't feel disconnected, but it feels so nice to get some face time in this digital age!

We left her to print and had lunch at Feast on Speedway (OMG that was wonderful!) and dropped off my prints at Tohono Chul. We drove home with big puffy white clouds dotting the big, blue sky.
It was a good day. Oh yeah, Steve and I also bought a house today. The seller agreed to our counteroffer and signed on the dotted line! More on this later.
